the scandal of the boston police department @and spying on activists as well as federalization of local law enforcement. we only have a brief amount of time, but maybe you could talk about those issues and how they relate to the big picture of what has been debated over power militarization of law enforcement, spying on dissidents in general. >> we published a report called the leasing -- policing defense, which has blown the lid off a scandal. the boston police department has been spying on the peaceful activity of antiwar groups and peace groups in the city of boston. this is a major story in boston and unfortunately did not make it to the level of the statewide political race as far as the warren brown contest was concern. that is unfortunate, and that has to change. we saw with the occupied movement, i like to refer to it lifting rocks that showed the unseemly side of what has been going on. you really saw police departments, advanced equipment deployed at largely peaceful protest groups. this problem is getting worse. they will continue to fund the police departments for their federali
's start with rita williams live in boston. that's where mitt romney's campaign is planning for a victory party. >> reporter: party planners have had to plan for any eventity, a tie, a win, or a loss. if there's a loss, they will turn the lights down real low and that confetti will, will you probably never see it. >> i'm just going to get the regular quarter pounder, without cheese. and a baked potato. >> now, mitt romney may not be very hungry tonight. and one of his last campaign stops today, he and his runningmate paul ryan ordered fast food in cleveland in that important battleground state of ohio. polls show president obama had the tinyist of lead going into this election day. >> i expect it to be more tired. given the number of events and hours and i think i got energy for the people that i spent time with, whether at the rope line or the rallies. when you have ten thousand people cheering you, you get a real boost from it. >> now, let me show you this video. the plane carrying mitt romney landed here in boston. and the governor had just returned from that swing from a day of campa
our colleague ray swawrers and hopefully we'll be joined by margaret warner in boston. ray is at the presidential candidate night headquarters in chicago. ray, what is the sense right now? when we talk about this ground game issue, what does the campaign say about what they have over the romney campaign in terms of ground game? >> they said this time instead of sending volunteers and sending field workers from state to state, they concentrated much more heavily on using people that people know. i mean it sounds kind of obvious. but all the research shows that when someone you know talks about you... talks to you about casting the vote in the first place or voting for the person you prefer, that has a lot more impact than somebody showing up at your door with paperwork, a leaflet or a pitch for a candidate. so they've put much more emphasis on having people work their own neighborhoods this time around. and they say they have hit their marks, that they are getting out their numbers. and so far so good. gwen? >> ifill: well, ray, i'm also curious. you're standing there at the
, nancy. jan crawford has been covering the romney campaign. she is in boston tonight. jan? >> well, scott, governor romney just landed here about an hour ago after making campaign stops in that key state of ohio and in pennsylvania. he talked to reporters on the way back on the plane and he said he felt good about this campaign. they hadn't left anything in the locker room and that he thinks they're going to win. he said he just finished his victory speech. he's not written a concession speech. now, the mood inside the campaign tonight, scott, is one of cautious optimism, i'd say. but there is a little bit of nervousness and here's why: campaign sources that i'm talking with tonight say they are encouraged by the high numbers of republican turnout they're seeing in these swing states like ohio, florida, virginia. they believe that will outperform john mccain in 2008. that's the key to this election. they really had to run up the score in those areas. but here's where the nervousness comes in. they're also seeing some of the president's turnout in some of those democratic areas like in nor

will be in massachusetts tomorrow evening. a campaign event in boston for his speech. two last minute additions to the romney schedule. let's go to rhode island. what do you expect tomorrow? caller: i expect obama to win. i'm going to vote for him. i voted for him in 2008. i feel obama has done a lot with no support. and the american people need to realize that. it's going to take more than four years for a president to turn this country around. this country -- they need to look back at the policies from the past republican president which was bush. and when obama came into office this country was in disarray. so obama has done a lot i feel within the first four years. he makes mistakes all presidents do but at the end of the day obama has promised things he actually come through with. and i feel that this election is going to be a lot closer than it was in 2008. i feel that obama, a lot of people are not giving him credit for the job that he's done. and he can do a lot more if people will give him four more years. host: over the last couple of days we have gathered leading journalists on polit
, around the corner. us bank. ♪ neil: all right. this is from the headquarters in boston, massachusetts. they're worried, but they're not giving up hope. obviously it's still a close race. listed look at the cave -- electoral tally as a stance. right now it is even. but the reason why we say it is primitive, it's even. the next round of those states at 11:00 p.m. are california, hawaii, idaho, oregon, and washington. those are all states that the president is expected to win. that would be about 70 -- actually 82 electoral votes that he could pick up in the 11:00 p.m. hour or shortly thereafter. so now your up to about 245. i have not even counted ohio where he is leading, not prohibitively, but leading command that would bring you to 263, within seven of winning the 270 you need. and then you understand that if your mitt romney you have to when virtually every single other state. that's what we mean by prohibitive math. looking at that same math. what do you think? >> i think it looks bleak for the republicans. i am not happy about it, but i am praying. i have all my fingers and toes c

correspondent is at governor romney's headquarters in boston. let's begin with you. >> they're excited, optimistic anxious and awaiting the result. it's an open question as to one might know until 1:00 a.m. or future days. the romney campaign is watching closely florida, virginia and ohio. there are very few victory strategies contemplated by boston, the romney campaign, that don't include the buckeye state and they're concerned about signs of high turn-out in the northern part of ohio where the detroit auto bail-out was a big mallet which the president pounded mr. romney. on the southern border of ohio along kentucky, particularly along cincinnati, hamilton county, big optimism and turn-out for the republican campaign. virginia, florida, ohio romney believes so go though so goes the country. romney has only written one speech, a victory speech. >> carl cameron. let's get straight to the president's camp in chicago and ed henry. >> shep, the president has been getting very wistful. it started in iowa what started the obama movement. he said today he was crying partly because it was col
on the appeals court in boston. he is from portland and have been backed by both republican senators. he was part of what they call thurmond's rule. >> thurmond-leahy rule. >> angus king, from maine, claiming the party alignment is up for grabs. his initial request is he would align with whatever party agreed to push for essentially doing away with the current filibuster rules. harry reid made clear he is not willing to go that far. i know still think angus king will align with a democrat. he endorsed obama. >> and he said yesterday he had conversations with him in the past 24 hours. >> and a phone call with bob corker. the point being that this is the kind of thing that i think a lot of freshmen -- king most vocal among them, they will come to the senate and say let us not spend our first months of this silliness of gratuitous filibuster and blocking a holding everything. let's clear out the underbrush. like you are speaking about, who none of us ever heard of. these are assistant secretaries that one or two senators even care about. >> i think a wrinkle is depending on how much it gets done in

is in chicago, and mitt romney in boston. we'll focus on the more competitive senate seats and taking reaction throughout the night by phone, e-mail, facebook, and twitter with live coverage beginning at eight eastern on c-span c-span radio, and c-span.org. >> when i watch c-span, i like the morning journal, the give and take there, the balanced approach, and i also like to hear the callers. never called myself, but i like hearing the callers. some of them are unusual to say the least, others thought provoking. c-span is everywhere. in washington, every event, you know, small hearings, public policy meeting downtown, c-span just seems to be there. >> steve austin watching c-span on verizon. c-span, created by america's cable companies in 1979 brought to you as a public service by your television provider. >>> up next, former presidential candidate ralph nader on his book "17 solutions: bold ideas for america's future" looking at the political and cosh -- landscape and issues facing the country. the independent candidate for president in 2004 and 2008 discusses tax reform, the reduction of the
love boston, and i went to school up there in high school. there are a lot of smart people up there, but i always resented the fact that people in the north think that people in texas are deserving of terms like corn opponent. i don't know about you but it upsets me because we do have people that are a little capable of doing things, including the then president of the united states, lyndon johnson. who in a six-week period kept the kennedy team, because it was essential to be able to keep the momentum going on the agenda that had stalled for three years, effectively. he kept the kennedy team which showed the leadership skill of humility. he had the leadership skill of doinged determination, and he had the skills of creating a strategy and he implemented in a six-week period a 25% across-the-board cut in income tax rates. believe it or not it's a liberal democrat, the idea was to cut taxes to raise revenue to begin to fund the great society programs. he went to the senate which was opposed to his ultimate goal of significant civil rights legislation, and convinced the dean of the se
today. i can give you a sense of the room, a swelling crowd at the convention center here in boston. people are holding a small, you know, american flag, ready to greet him. ready to hear what mitt romney, ann romney, the family they have supported will come down and they'll have a united front as this family always does. i have to say there is some question in the room about whether or not the governor is headed down here. those numbers in ohio are so close and there is a thought among some people in here that perhaps they're not absolutely ready to concede. we'll continue to work that out. one of my partners in crime on the trail off-air reporter emily friedman did an amazing job working that part of the story but as you can see here, the crowd is fixed on the screens as they have been for the last half hour. it's very quiet in here. it's been quiet really for most of the night except for the initial wins and early states, a difficult evening for the people who really thought as this campaign portrayed in the last 24, 48 hours that they really had a shot at winning the presidency

[applause] and i ran for office because i am concerned about america. this election is over, but our principles and door. i believe that the principles upon which this nation was founded are the only sure guide to a resurging economy and renew greatness. like so many of you, paul and i have left everything on the field, we have given our all to this campaign.
